I think this is a good deal for the 3gb. But 6gb is always the way to go for a bit more cash.

3GB does not cut it these days, would rather have the 4GB 1050ti.


Another one who thinks more VRAM = better performance... The 1060 3GB is LEVELS ahead of the 1050TI 4GB

1060 3GB smokes the 1050 Ti 4GB and doesn't cost much more. Of course 3GB isn't ideal, but with the inflated mining prices for higher end cards, options are limited.

Better to go for a 1080 as 1070s are over inflated. I'm waiting on a used 1080 i bought for 375£

I don't recommend Asus graphics cards. I bought a 1070 that malfunctioned, opened a support case with Asus and they never replied. Sent multiple emails requesting updates and nothing. In the end since I had to get my credit card company to do a section 75 on them.

Not just my opinion either, check out their trustpilot reivews. Lots of people saying they don't get support from Asus when it all goes wrong.

If you do go for one, get it from somewhere you know has a good returns policy like amazon but even sometimes they will refer you to the manufacturer and if it's Asus you're in trouble....

In 5 years of spending thousands of Amazon, I've NEVER been referred to the manufacturer.

Try buying something from Hozelock, got referred then.
Depends what the issue is I guess. I agree it's rare but just because it never happened to you doesn't mean it "NEVER" happens.

And besides, it doesn't change anything about Asus' pathetic support. When 89% of reviews of them are bad because of bad support, it should say something about the company practices

Got referred to BQ when I bought their crappy Aquaris X5 phone too.

1060 3GB is much better than the 1050Ti - the only reason someone should get the 1050Ti (besides their budget) is if they have a low wattage power supply - the 1050Ti is fully powered by the PCI Express slot on the motherboard.

Then you are ignoring all the performance reviews.

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

Even if you decide to play at 4k on these two cards, which uses tons of vram, the 1060 wins.
If you keep them both at 1080p, like a same person, the 1060 is nearly 50 percent faster. There is no comparison, get the 1060.

Asus are the spawn of hatred. Use them at your peril. An absolutely obnoxious company to deal with.
A lot of 1050ti need extra power as well ....

Combine this card with a i3-8100 and you have a solid low budget gaming PC, for 1080p @ 60fps.

The GTX1060 3GB is more powerfull than 1050ti 4GB. In some games is even equal to RX480. I know this, because I own and tested 1050ti, 1060-3GB, 1060-6GB, RX480-4GB, RX480-8GB, RX580-8GB.

Usually is £40-70 between the 3GB and 6GB versions. That could mean an SSD/more RAM/better case/better psu/better mouse+keyboard/speakers for a low budget gamer.

Why not read the reviews rather than testing all those yourself!!!

The 3gb version actually also has less cuda cores (or something) than the 6gb version, resulting in around 5% less performance... I think I read this on digitalfoundry.

LOL I am reading reviews. The reason I bought them is not to test them, but I said why the heck not, since I have them in hand

Yes, that is true. Even with less cuda cores, still equal to RX480 in many games, especially in nVidia optimized titles (which are a lot!)

Tell me about it, being someone who has recently installed Arkham Knight and A.C. Black Flag... on an AMD R9 270X. This deal is extremely tempting for me especially since I have one of the smallest mini itx cases on the market. I don't expect to be playing at 4k anytime within the next 3-5 years, but I'm wondering just how badly 3gb VRAM might bite me within that time.

There 40 quid you save now can just be stuck to your next GPU when you feel 3gb falls behind

Not even 1080ti will last 5 years. Will be outdated by then. The 1060 3GB version might be alright for the next 2 years or so, especially if you have tons of unplayed games on Steam, like I do. Plenty of AAA titles, some even 2-3 years old, waiting for me to play them.

Why are you contacting ASUS, and not the store you bought it from? They have the obligation to replace it if faulty, or refund your money. Can you imagine what would happen if every client would contact ASUS instead of their vendor?

It's over £40 more than the 1050ti.The performance gains are negligible seeing as the 1050ti can hit 1080p at 60fps on most modern games with high to ultra graphic settings.

The 1060 3GB struggles with 1440p at medium settings. The more VRAM and higher speeds of the 1060 6GB for a little extra provide more consistent results.

It's a bad deal for 1080p gaming as its over kill. It's a bad deal for 1440p gaming as its not powerful enough.
I bought this a few weeks ago and can run nearly anything in high-ultra 60fps. Very impressed with the card
